Gospa Sinjska / Our Lady of Sinj - Croatia
Tradition holds that Catholics in Sinj spent the night of August 14, 1715 praying for the Blessed Mother's intercession to stop an army of Turks bent on taking the city and moving toward Vienna. When the Blessed Mother's image appeared in the sky the next day - the Feast of the Assumption - the Turkish soldiers became violently ill and retreated. The local celebrations includes a procession, Mass and roast lamb and other traditional Croatian foods.
